Want to listen to the ham bands in other parts of the world? “A WebSDR is a Software-Defined Radio receiver connected to the internet, allowing many listeners to listen and tune it simultaneously. SDR technology makes it possible that all listeners tune independently, and thus listen to different signals; this is in contrast to the many classical receivers that are already available via the internet.” Almost 200 sites around the world are listed along with their operating setup. You select the band, mode, filters etc and listen live. You can even check to see if your signal is making it to Brazil, Australia or even Texas!

Check it out at the link listed in the Member’s Favorites.

Enjoy and be sure to send me your favorite internet links.

Repeater information

Got a new ht or mobile (like me) and wondering what repeaters to program into it? A new link has been added to the Member’s Favorites called “Repeaters – Repeaters”. The Northern Amateur Relay Council of California, Inc. (NARCC) is the Amateur Radio coordinating organization for the 10 meter band and higher in Northern California. Free databases are given for each band and area – i.e. 2 meters in the North Bay. If you’re using programming software to program that new rig you can even cut and paste making the programming easy. Enjoy!

New links

Check out the Member’s Favorites for a couple of new and very neat links. The first is a YouTube video that comes from Jim, WB6ZZR about a $59 flagpole antenna that requires no radials. The key is it’s design. Check it out. It’s simple to build! The second comes from a discussion about propagation software with John, N6XN at the last SARS meeting. It’s under the heading “Neat propagation software”. Plug in your site location, antenna type and power and see what percentage chances you have of making a contact anywhere in the world at anytime of the day just by dragging a pointer on the world map.

Enjoy and don’t forget to send me your favorite links.
